This past weekend we headed south to Barrington RI for an ocean side dinner w/ family. As sea side dinning goes, its better to visit in the summer when 1. you can sit outside and 2. you can see the water…
Needless to say, we were not deterred as Bluewater Bar + Grill is a place we have wanted to try for quite sometime. Formerly the Tyler Point Grill, Bluewater is tucked against/inside a marina on the way out of town toward Warren RI. Newly renovated and re-branded, we knew we were in for a good evening when a full stocked bar was sited as we walked in, and the open kitchen was bustling w/ activity!
Bluewater caters to family’s, which is great as the littlest Road and Snacker was joining us, so we were not going to cause a ruckus. Don’t get us wrong, after “family” hour, Bluewater Bar + Grill is a fine place to be for date nights, live music, a cocktails and awesome food!
We started w/ sweet potato fritters, and were impressed to say the least – the deep fried corn, black beans, cumin & of course sweet potatoes patties w/ a coconut curry sauce… We crispy, flavorful yet not overly filling. Something I would re order every time!
Dinner consisted for the lasagna (which is what we ordered every-time previously when it was Tyler Point) and heard via some feedback, that the lasagna remained as awesome if not better than last time. So, the decision was easy. And I am happy to say Blue Water Bar + Grill’s lasagna was an improved version. Using veal vs. beef, and the addition of spinach set our meal apart from previous visits.
A great meal was had, the company was excellent, the drink(s) were tasty and the updated styling by Blue Water Bar + Grill were tastefully done. All in all, a great local grill for those that live close enough to call it this, or a nice destination for those who want a bit of ocean, boats and great food!
Cheers all and drive safe!
